.... well, maybe the cat was a little reluctant, but he was there! :)
I'm so excited. I'm sitting here looking at the cutest stuff that people have brought over to sell at our Holiday Open House tomorrow. I just had to post a couple of photos for you to see. Gwen dropped stuff off this morning, Katie's Kreations and Orphaned No More are here already. I have about four others coming tomorrow morning at 9. I'm thrilled to offer my friends a way to gather some unique and fun gifts while giving something to orphans at the same time. I have prayed over every single thing I have set out. I am asking God to bless the person who buys it, bless the person who the money supports, and bless every person that walks through that door tomorrow. I am so hopeful! I have heard from several folks that they are inviting others and my sincerest prayer is that someone will walk through the door and be moved toward adoption. That's what God can do with a simple open door! It's just thrilling to sit back and watch and just be a part of it! I'm just thanking God tonight that He chose me to walk this path of supporting and loving and caring for the orphans. It's consumed me and wrecked me and destroyed me in so many ways, but the key word there is "me".... I want to continue to be destroyed for what God is pursuing until there is nothing left of "me" and only what He is doing through me is left.
